The Lynx has been used extensively within the Army Air Corps for a wide variety of roles and tasks. It is predominantly a battlefield utility helicopter although it has been used for both anti-tank and reconnaissance operations. The addition of door gunners has allowed Lynx to operate in the very close air support role in Iraq. Two versions are in service with the Army Air Corps - namely Mk 7 (skids) and the Mk 9 (wheeled undercarriage). The Lynx still holds the helicopter world speed record, and thanks to its semi-rigid titanium rotor head it is also superbly manoeuvrable. This makes it the centrepiece of Army Aviation display flying.
